feedback after a week of daily carry, clip is a little small, will likely replace it. i carry my keys and knife in right front pocket, keys have already marred grip finish, but i walk ~10,000 steps a day.

daily carried it for about a week now. using it to replace a doug ritter griptilian in s30v that has been my right hand carry for over a decade, as well as a hest i was carrying left handed (for glass breaker).

so this doesn't have as good of steel as what i used to carry, but it is replaceable, and combines two knives with it's feature sets.overall happy with it. was nicely surprised with how grippy it is, even with metal scales.

Sneaky eager little bugger

So I placed the order for this beaut on 05/08/2020 and it showed up today. When the doorbell rang, I knew my newest precious has arrived. I jumped up with glee, went to the door and ripped it open with excitement. Only to find the postal driver standing there with an open box, and a puzzled look on his face. I was devastated. I thought..... " Dang it! Some schlub seen bladehq on the box, and wanted to ruin my day". Nope.... I closed the door, empty box in hand, and stumbled over to my desk. Fully ready to contact the postal customer service. But alas, there it was. In all of its grey Cerakote M4, with a smooth (yet grippy) Forest Green robe on, showing me the perfectly centered and sharpened M4 goodness it has to offer. It worked its way out of the box and into my home. Eager to show me what all it had going on. The cherry on the top, was when it showed me that spiffy little glass breaker on its bottom, letting me know it was ready and willing to help me out of a tight spot if I was to ever need it.

All joking aside, this knife is superbly constructed, perfectly centered, and sharp as can be. Benchmade made a knife that I didn't even know I wanted, and after seeing it, I needed it. Now that I've got it, it's all that I could have asked for. Thank you BladeHQ for finally having it in stock when I looked. And thank you also for the artwork applied to the shipping box. Excellent service as usual. Keep it up, and stay safe.

So light and slim but tough. Perfect for my EDC. If I was going to spend this much for a knife, I wanted it to feel good quality in hand so I went with this over the Bugout and the aluminum does not disappoint. The action is superb, opening with just a slight flick of the thumb stud or using the axis lock and a flick of the wrist. The drop close is excellent. So easy, I find myself fidgeting with it with my off (left) hand as easily as my right. I worry that playing with it is so addictive that Iíll wear out the lock springs. As for the glass breaker, some hate it but Iím glad to have it just in case because this knife will be with me always. Love the colors and quality. I now understand why benchmade is so expensive. Worth it!
Extremely sharp out of the box, well constructed

Awesome blade, very thin to add the slicey factor with the toughness of a tanto blade it blends very well. Gorgeous knife.
Landyard retainer: would have preferred rounded edges, but functions well as a bottle opener.
Scales: Huge upgrade, great texture, won't tear up your hands but will keep a grip if wet.
Jimping is exeptional.

OF NOTE: the glass breaker works reallllly well. I had this on my scrubs with my phone in the right jacket pocket, gave my iphone a sweet spiderweb background on my walk into work.

My new favorite for every day. Love my Bugout, but had to upgrade the scales. This Bailout has a nice slim profile, perfect amount of heft, and just that little extra length to the handle that fits perfectly in my hand. Factory edge on the M4 steel is wicked sharp.
Upgrades all around

The handle gave me some pause before it came. I did not hate the grivory handles on the previous model but I understood all the concerns about it. The handle on this version is fantastic. It has grip but not too much and it is good and solid.
The odd construction of the pommel lanyard on the last model seemed to want to be a striker or something but it was too flat to be effective. This version has a solid glass breaker that makes it have some punch. The blade steel is certainly an upgrade.
They really seemed to have addressed all the concerns from the last model. If you need a lightweight folding knife to carry and be ready if truly needed this should be on your list to look at.
Great Knife

This knife looks better in person, the green is a little darker than the picture(which is good).The gray Cerakote finish is great with the green. The lock up and release are awesome. This knife disappears in your pocket which is thin, but strong. The aluminum scales are have no flex, really awesome knife for EDC.
